Why You Should Be Eating More Ginger

In the world of spices, ginger has some pretty amazing benefits that Fox News Health is highlighting. For centuries, this spice has been used to treat a range of afflictions, from motion sickness to pain and bloating and more. The best part of this, according to Fox News, is that you can get ginger’s benefits whether the spice comes fresh and whole or powdered.

Ginger is what I refer to as one part of the superfood trio of ginger, turmeric and carrots. Nutrients in turmeric, ginger and carrots contain flavor compounds that make them favorites in the culinary world, but their curative power has been recognized in both Chinese and East Indian Ayurvedic medicine for millennia.

All three of these foods are roots: Carrots come from the Umbelliferae family, while both ginger and turmeric belong to the Umbelliferae botanical group. One of the most important bonuses they share are disease-fighting antioxidants which not only help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, but also pain and inflammation.

These superfoods are also great cancer fighters. Two more reasons these superfoods are great are that in most stores, they are quite inexpensive, even if they're organic — and organic is always the better buy.

In oil form, ginger can help relieve aches and pains when used topically. Aromatherapists also value ginger oil's soothing and warming qualities to address digestive problems. In fact, this is one of ginger oil's most popular uses: relieving any kind of digestive upset including nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, gas and even morning sickness.
